Hi paizo CS people

My amended subscription order for April (#3898660 according to my email) looks a little odd.

The duplicate CD has been removed (thank you). However, I thought I had preordered the limited edition #5 of the comic - not sure if it was removed mistakenly, or if I am wrong about me ordering it. Either way, I've just added a copy to my sidecart - if it's possible to ship it with this month's subscription that would be good.

The main issue is that it seems the shipping option has been changed from UPS International to standard shipping. Could you amend it back to UPS International, please?

Also, you're probably already aware, but it appears from my account that I'm going to get two copies of the next legends set.

Thanks for sorting that for me.

Cheers
Steve

Whilst more humanoid figures is not something I'm ever going to get excited about, I like the colour scheme of these. I think they'll mix in well with both the grey maidens and the cultists.

Hi Paizo

If I'm browsing various threads, I use the set of links at the top (About Paizo - Messageboards - News - Paizo Blog - My Account - Help/FAQ) quite a lot. Generally to jump back to Messageboards but occasionally to the others.

If I'm browsing a product discussion thread, that bar is replaced with links to the various product lines and the messageboard link off to the right goes to a subsection of the forums, rather than to the 'global view'.

Is there any chance of keeping the usual links available when browsing the product discussion threads? (Or is there some easy way to get there that I'm missing?)

Cheers
Steve

Hi Paizo

Sharaya mentioned that all the march orders should have been shipped by now, but I don't think I've received any email and the order still shows as pending.

Would you mind having a look to see what's going on with it?

Cheers

This has previously been deemed problematic, but with the larger flip-mats and the imminent Inner Sea Faiths it seems like things may be relaxing in that department. I'd like to voice my support for a little leeway in this regard - I'd much prefer for the prices to vary (minimally and where necessary) within a product line, rather than fix that and then have books need to be pared back to fit a pre-determined size constraint.

I feel the Absalom book definitely could have benefitted from being 96 rather than 64 pages (granted that was very early in the piece) and it seems to me that several of the players' companions have felt somewhat 'crammed' from time to time.

I know there are some who budget tightly based around the predictable prices. It seems to me that an automated warning email a month prior noting that the next subscription will be $4 higher than usual (or whatever it is) might go a long way to alleviate the budgetting issue. Albeit a month with several larger-than-usual releases might push some people to drop a subscription.

Anyhow - not sure if there's been a relaxing of policy, or if this is a testing of the waters. If so, I thoroughly approve.
Can't wait to see Inner Sea Faiths! :)

Just picked up my copy from the shop. This is as good as the previous three issues. Hollow mountain is my favorite storyline so far.

I can just imagine Oloch's player after the final panel: "But that's what my character would do..."

Ignoring the irony..Thanks to the tech team for cleaning that latest incursion up so quickly. It's strange how depressing it is to log on to paizo and see all that rubbish. This burst seemed to only last a week or so - greatly appreciated. :)

The actual point of this post was in response to Chris's comment in the recently locked thread that there's no need to flag spam posts. Without giving anything away re:tactics, is it still useful to you or is it a total waste of time?

I don't feel compelled to hunt down every post, but if I see something that's been there for a couple of hours I tend to flag it in case it's been missed by the laser. I don't feel obligated, but I'm happy to do so provided there's some (even marginal) benefit. If it literally has no purpose then I'll probably not bother.

I generally run APs in systems other than Pathfinder and we generally prefer low-power, low-scope of action games.

Which APs do you think work best for that kind of feel? (At the saving-the-village end of the scale, as opposed to the saving-the-world end).

Hi Paizo

For the last couple of Iconic Heroes releases (#4 and #5) I've had a preorder set to ship with my subscriptions.

Everything has seemed to work fine, except that I have subsequently received a second copy. In the first case I didn't mention it as I wasn't 100% sure that I didn't accidentally order it twice, but I'm more sure with #5.

Could you look into that for me and see if I did, in fact, order them both twice or whether there's some glitch sending me two copies when I preorder to my sidecart?

I'm very happy to have two copies, so there's no issue at the end of the day, however I'd like to know if I'm doing something stupid or if the 21st century is conspiring against me (again).

Cheers
Steve

I found this set of ten cleric domains which I quite like. For the price of a coffee, it's hard to go wrong really. There's a few editting issues (some poorly worded sentences and even some fragments which aren't in English, so perhaps it's a translation) but I found several of them to be well balanced and thematically interesting.

Has anyone else found anything they'd recommend?

Hi Paizo

I've recently started using the new UPS International because it's proven cheaper and quicker than USPS priority international, but the big thing that decided it for me is that it comes with tracking info.

When I check an order in transit via my account, I still get the standard message:

"International shipments are not trackable and do not have guaranteed transit times. Any applicable customs charges are the responsibility of the recipient."

Is there any chance that, when international shipments DO provide tracking information, that a link to the UPS website, together with the tracking number could be inserted there instead of the opening clause? (ie an exact copy of what you sent in the email)

It would help me, since my email is at home but I'm having stuff delivered to work.

Cheers
Steve

Obviously the stuff I'd be looking to produce under the CUP wouldn't be uploaded to the DM's guild. However, if I were to release anything on the DMG (likely to be free or possibly "pay what you want") would that lead Paizo to think I was a publisher and therefor no longer eligible to utilise the CUP?

Would it depend on how much material was released through the DMG?
If you do reach that conclusion, is it irrevocable? (Like if I cross a line, can I walk it back and cease being thought of as "in the publishing business"?)

Cheers

Thanks very much for taking the subscriber concerns re:singles on board. It doesn't surprise me, but being expected doesn't make it any less appreciated. :)

I'm currently running a 'pseudo action' of a bunch of RPG books. It's five lots per week for the next five weeks - I'll send the books to whoever pledges to donate the highest amount to The Roleplaying Game Creators Relief Fund.

Please see this thread in the Gamer Talk subforum, if you're interested.

Even if you're not interested. Please consider making a donation to the RCRF - I think it's a good way to help out some of the freelancers and others who work for us for very little reward.

You may or may not have heard of The Roleplaying Game Creators Relief Fund. It is a charity that was set up to help those who work in the RPG industry and who suffer some kind of medical emergency or other disaster. It relies on donations from companies or individuals to provide assistance in a variety of circumstances.

I am currently having a semi-regular purge of my RPG collection and have decided to run a “pseudo auction” here on the Paizo forums. I’ve divided the things I’m getting rid of into twenty five lots and will be giving them away over the next five weeks (five lots per week). Some are Paizo books, some are collectible books from years ago and others are more niche. Most are in good condition – I’ll identify which are “much loved” when they come up.

The way I’m selecting the recipients each week is via a secret auction of pledges to the RCRF. You can PM me your bid throughout the week the lot you’re interested in is up for auction and at the end of the week the highest bidder will win. I’ll then send you the books you bid on and you’ll make a donation to the RCRF via their webpage (they have a paypal link, but I suspect you can contact them to organise other ways to make your payment).

All bids will be confidential and I won’t reveal any winners nor any of the values of bids made.

If you are unsuccessful in your bid (or just uninterested in what’s on offer), please consider making a donation. The people who work in our industry are often doing it for the love rather than the money – when medical setbacks occur it can prove difficult to continue, given the realities of healthcare costs.

Any queries, please post them here or feel free to PM me.

Hi Paizo

I have a strange Order (#3777613) which arose when I was playing around with the PF legends digital subscription. It's showing as pending but I've got everything from it (I don't actually need the digital subscription, since I have the regular one). Would you mind setting it to finalised so I don't get confused?

Cheers
Steve

Hi Paizo

Could you please cancel my Player Companion subscription? It's been a while since we've played any pathfinder other than 'Core book only' so these are kind of piling up unused... :/

Hi Paizo

I got my December authorisation a while back but haven't yet received my shipping notification. I have switched to the new UPS shipping method (yay speed, tracking and comparable cost!) but it has the downside of not being able to go to my PO Box.

I've set my address to my workplace (since that's where I thought I'd be) but since I'm quite late in the queue, it is now not going to arrive until after Christmas (and in that week, I'll be at home).

Is there any way I can change my address to home (keeping the UPS shipping) or can I change my shipping method to USPS priority and send it to my PO Box?

I appreciate it might be buried in a pile of "about to be mailed" address labels, but if there's some way to organise either of those things, that would be great (I'm not sure what's going to happen if the UPS package turns up at work - there isnt really any way to even leave a card).

Cheers
Steve

In relation to all the recent maps and the upcoming, 'post-constructed' campaign setting - where does Durbenford sit relative to Bard's Gate, the Sundered Kingdoms, Etcetera?

Every now and again when I open the forums, every thread is followed by twice as much blank space as usual. It's no big deal, but it does take rather a long time to scroll to the bottom when one has most subforums showing (plus it's harder to find the right subforum).

I'm not sure what version of windows I'm using (windows vista, I think), but the browser is chrome.

Hi Paizo people

I spoke to Sara Marie and later Diego about some promo minis which had appeared to go astray (since they were just outside the 'expected to arrive by...' window). You rather generously added some replacements to my December subscription order and so, lo and behold, they turn up the next day. (Well some duergar, fire beetles and drakes did - I'm sure the wererat is skulking around somewhere...).

Long story short - would you please amend the above order and remove the minis (which were all added as replacements) as everything is now hunky dory.

I realise this is no doubt terribly confusing for your poor computer...Probably best to push my subscription order to the front of the queue this month. Just to make everything easy for all concerned (I'm only thinking of you). *inno*

Cheers
Steve

I don't really keep up to date with the card game anymore. However, I'd like to sleeve my copy of RotRL and pack it into a well organised case/tray/whatever.

Did the Ultrapro cases which were planned to fit a base set plus all its expansions ever get off the ground? Are they still in the works?

I saw a thread about a 'broken token insert' which I presume is an alternative. I'd rather wait for the Ultrapro case if they are on the way, but not if development has been discontinued.

Has there been any semi-recent public news/announcements on that?


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Card Game, Class Deck, Maps, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber

In discussions on "balance" of an RPG, is there much weight put on how well spells of the same level (or equivalent) are close in power?

Having played a few different casters now, I'm finding it hard to not always take the same old spells (bless for divine casters just seems much, much better than other first level spells. Shield is another pretty decent spell on the arcane side, although I haven't had a lot of experience with them, so there's probably a better example...)

Obviously, there are situational differences in utility, so different spells will be more or less powerful/useful depending on the campaign. Nonetheless, it still seems to me that two fifth level spells 'should' be around about equal in power level, but often aren't.

Is this just an accepted thing? Or is the counter-argument that, since you can often choose whatever you like, it's not really a balance issue for an RPG unless one class gets all the good spells and another gets all the crappy ones?

Hi Paizo

I may have broken things due to not following the blog instructions, but I'm now following Chris's instructions for fixing it.

Would you please cancel the electronic sub (if I have it) and make sure I keep the CD-sub (if I don't).

Sorry for messing around. Hopefully this is sufficient explanation.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Card Game, Class Deck, Maps, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber

The FAQ says you can't add both a digital and a CD subsription to PF legends but I just tried adding the digital version despite already being a subscriber and it seemed to go through.

Perhaps there's no problem, but I thought I'd mention it just in case it might lead to issues in the December subscription run (albeit self-inflicted issues...)


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Card Game, Class Deck, Maps, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber

Mine is on the way, but we're usually a few weeks behind the US.

I'm curious how the new Archetypes compare with the ones in the Player's Handbook.

This has always been one of my favorite PF Battles minis. I got to use it for the first time the other day - triumphantly placed it down at a suitably climactic scene, only to have my brother kill the moment with "This is it. We're being menaced by a giant hockey player."

Bloody brothers. :(

Hi Paizo

I wanted to touch base again regarding this preorder for the latest Wizkids miniatures. I'm pretty sure it was supposed to "ship from our warehouse within 4 to 18 days" and I think this has fallen outside that window. It's definitely been available elsewhere for quite some time now and I'm concerned that the reason I haven't got it yet is because I'm never going to. :(

I asked previously and you said you couldn't provide any information about when it would arrive. Is there any way you can contact your distributor and confirm that a case is actually on the way? Given it's available in lots of other places, it makes me think your order with them has fallen through the cracks. If you're not going to be able to get me one, I don't want to wait too long until I order one from elsewhere.

Tangentially, the shipping costs seem a little huge ($58-98 for the premium seems about right, but $167-17 for a case makes me think it has been mis-weighted in your system). If it is still possible to get it through you, then when the shipping is finalised it would be great if that can be organised through my new preferred method of UPS (which wasn't available when I placed the order).

Thanks (and sorry for nagging - it's just that once I see it retailing in Australian shops I figure something has gone awry!)

Cheers
Steve

I just sorted all my minis last weekend and when it came to golems, I was struck by the fact that I don't own a flesh golem and had resolved to bring it up here...

Now it turns out you've been solving my problem before I even realised I had it. Nice one, Erik - this time travelling schtick suits me down to the ground. :)

Hi Katina

I spoke to you on Wednesday (I think) regarding an order for Ultimate Combat that I was hoping you could organise for me. The complicating factor being that my recent order was a second printing and I only want another copy if it's third printing (I believe you can make an annotation on the order to check that?)

I havent yet seen any movement on my account, nor got any email. Did I maybe misunderstand? Am I supposed to add the book myself and then you'll add the annotation?

No rush, just let me know if I need to do anything. :)

Cheers
Steve

Thank you. The cost and transit time may not suit everyone, but in my opinion, more options is only a good thing. Thanks for continually trying to make shopping here better.

Hi Paizo

I always stress about this even though it always works out in the end. Nonetheless... The above order was for the latest Wizkids miniatures release which seems to now be available elsewhere, however I haven't seen a confirmation email yet and it's showing as unavailable here.

Is everything still working as it should? That doesn't mean you're actually unable to get them or anything alarming?

Hi Paizo

I thought I'd mention some credit card authorizations which look a little odd relating to this month's subscription shipment.

According to my amended subscription email (thanks for sorting that for me, Sharaya!) my total order will be $326-13. However, it then lists five separate authorisations totalling $374 (ish).

There's no drama, but that seems a little peculiar and I figured it might warrant investigation.

Cheers
Steve


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Card Game, Class Deck, Maps, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber

I have this preordered with a case and the latter shows as expected in August, whereas this is showing an expected September shipment.

Do you have any more up-to-date estimate of when it's likely to be available?


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Card Game, Class Deck, Maps, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber

I've been trying to locate a second printing of the Player's Handbook for ease of access to the errata. However, all the copies I can physically find in Australia are first printings and online retailers haven't been able to guarantee which printing I'll get if I order through them.

If there's anyone who is able to locate a second printing and would be willing to grab a couple of copies and post them to me here (in Australia), I'd greatly appreciate it. I can fix you up ahead of time for whatever it's going to cost via paypal, bank transfer or paizo.com gift certificates - whatever would suit you best. Happy to add a handling fee as well.

Quests of Doom 2 Preorder

Chilling Gaze is a sixth level warlock/wizard spell (p31 of Book of Lost Spells, by Frog God Games). It has no material component cost, casting time of one action and a duration of concentration up to one minute. It's effect is as follows:

Quote:

Your eyes become cold and frosty. For the duration of this spell, whenever a creature starts it turn within thirty feet of you, you can force it to make a Constitution saving throw. The creature must be able to see your eyes and you must be able to see it. If the saving throw fails, the creature takes 2d10 cold damage and becomes paralysed by supernatural chills. The paralysis lasts 2d4 days; this decreases to 1 day if the victim is warmed by a dwelling, bundled in furs, etc. The paralysis can also be ended by magic capable of removing paralysis.

Creatures that are resistant to or immune to cold damage are not paralysed by the spell.

There's a couple of issues I see:

Firstly, the power (paralysed for 2d4 days on one failed save) is much higher than other sixth level spells. I think I'd like to drop it to paralysed with a save every round to shake it off. (I'd also insert a clause that after saving once you would be immune to this specific casting of the spell).

Second, it seems to break 5E's action economy. Attacking on every opponent's turn seems a little too much. I'm thinking of requiring the use of the caster's reaction, so it will affect at most one target per round.

Any thoughts?

Hi Paizo CS people

Im trying to order this book. I'm hoping to buy it and ship it on its own, as soon as possible. However, the only shipping option I'm getting is USPS priority (ie $53). Is there a reason for this or has it perhaps been entered as bigger than it really is?

If it has to go priority, I may as well sidecart it. I'd quite like to treat it separately though, if at all possible.

Cheers
Steve


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Card Game, Class Deck, Maps, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber

Hi Paizo

Is there a reason I can only ship this via USPS priority? I'd like to order it and ship it on it's own, but $53 for postage is a little steep. I wondered if it's shipping dimensions had been misentered or something. (Or is it bigger than I thought, perhaps?)

Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide.

I'm looking forward to this. It reads to me like the new class archetypes are tied pretty heavily to the world of Forgotten Realms - more like the prestige classes of old. Of course, there's not much more than an impression at the moment.

Hi Paizo

I don't seem to be able to empty my shopping cart. Would you be able to send Trouble at Durbenford and The Bonegarden to my sidecart for me?

I'd like it if the rest of the items currently in my shopping cart could be deleted.

I thought it was a good idea to dump all the "possibles" there and sort through what I really wanted. Turns out it wasn't.

Hi Paizo people

I think I must be doing something dumb (again). I'm trying to buy a gift certificate for someone else with a paizo.com account. I've added it to my shopping cart and selected gift options but I can't seem to find where I'm supposed to tell you who the recipient is.

When I go to checkout I see:

step 1 - Shopping cart, which indicates it is a gift and that I should "click here if it isnt"

step 2 - Payment method. Again it declares this order is a gift but there's no way to say who it's for.

final step - Confirm your order. Here it tells me that when I place my order my card will be charged and the order complete. It shows gift options and 'gift messages displayed below' but, of course there's nothing there. Nor is there any recipient.

Do I have to finalise the order before I select a recipient? That seems very counter-intuitive to me.

Any clarification would be appreciated.

Cheers
Steve

Hmm, the USPS priority shipping to Australia looks cheaper than I expected. Maybe the system has some screwy weight/size data for the case?


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Card Game, Class Deck, Maps, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber

I've got no idea how it's travelling, but it feels to me that the modules lack a certain enthusiasm in the community (the message board community, anyhow). I really like the new format, but I wonder if they've drifted a little close to becoming "an AP instalment with smaller appendices"?

I wondered if a clear, qualitative distinction could be made in the structure of the modules themselves and if this might increase their appeal by catering to a slightly different market segment. They seem to me to be on the railroad side of things - quite similar to the average AP chapter in structure: a place, a situation, a villain and a pretty clearly signposted "expected path to resolution". I'd like to see some more towards the sandbox end of the spectrum - a site based adventure with a setting, a villain, a plot-that-will-happen-if-you-don't-do-something but without the same part one...part two...part three...climax structure that they tend to adopt.

An AP is going to struggle to allow too much leeway, but it seems to me that a module would be a good place to try out a qualitatively different style of adventure.

The 1st level wild magic surge class feature says the DM can have you roll a d20 after casting a non-cantrip with a 1 leading to some wild magic effects. Would you require this roll after every spell as DM? Do you think it's intended to be used sparingly?

Similarly with the 1st level tides of chaos feature (you can gain advantage once per long rest, unless you cast a spell and the DM makes you roll on the wild magic table, in which case you get another use). How often would you ask for the roll and "recharge" the power? (From every time to never). Would you let it recharge multiple times in one period between long rests? What do you think was intended?

I liked that feature. Fingers crossed it's just a temporary absence..

I know the second Cyclopean Depths book is imminent. Am I misremembering that there were going to be future expansion of RA as well (beyond the first 'subscription')?

Or was that just a possibility which isnt likely to happen in the near future?
